May Day: A List of Live-Streamed Activities


Today is May Day, a holiday where workers alike across the globe both celebrate solidarity and go out into the streets in protest of workers rights. In cities everywhere, from the U.S. to Japan, activities including general strikes are held through out the day, some lasting late into the night. The list provided in this post contains links to live streams of activities from across the globe, in order for you to gain some insight on what the holiday looks like in different regions. The list will hopefully be expanded as the day goes on.
